How To Design Your Experiment

BioCAT supports a number of techniques for analysis of partially-ordered and disordered biological materials. Below is a list of the techniques that we currently support, as well as, HOWTO documents detailing the procedure for performing each experiment at the BioCAT facility.

These descriptions should help you to decide if our facility can support your research. However, it is strongly recommended that---prior to visiting BioCAT---you discuss your experiment with the user liaison for your technique after reading these descriptions. In this way, your experiment can be tailored to our facility so that you spend less time assembling and debugging your set-up and more time taking high-quality data.
